The Horological Science chapter will meet on Thursday night, July 6 at 9:00 p.m. The topic will be current
horological projects by members. It will be preceded by the Antiquarian Horological Society chapter meeting
at 7:00 p.m. Will Andrewes will speak on "A day in 400 years"--- the origins and evolution of
our calendar and other units of time. Will is well known as a past curator of the Time Museum and of the
Collection of Historical Scientific instruments at Harvard, and the Chairman of the NAWCC Longitude Symposium
There is a Rock the Boat item and response in this issue. These are meant to be comments no longer than
half a page on horological topics, including controversial ones, but not personal. This is a quick way
to write a short article, convey an important idea or ask a question.
Request for articles: New material is always needed and appreciated. Are you, or someone you know working
on something that would interest our readership? Please contact me if you need help getting your ideas
and work into print.

at night from the Great Bear.
